We administered a structured questionnaire to assess risk factors for HPV infection, determine knowledge about HPV vaccines and assess willingness to receive the HPV vaccine among adolescent and early adult girls in Nigeria. We collected samples to determine the prevalence and patterns of HPV infections. Ethical approval for the study was obtained from the Jos University Teaching Hospital Ethics Committee (JUTH/DCS/ADM/127/XIX/5852). Written informed consent and assent were obtained from all participants and/or their parents before enrolment. All methods in the study were carried out according to the approved protocol. 

The dataset contains the responses of 205 participants from 10 randomly selected public and private secondary schools in Jos, Nigeria. The data includes information on risk factors for HPV infections such as sexual behaviours, knowledge about HPV vaccine and willingness to receive the vaccine. This is valuable information that can be compared to data from studies in other environments or to determine changes in the pattern of risk factors and HPV prevalence in this population over time.
